About

Are you caught in cycles that leave you exhausted? Do you want to have better relationships but find them splintering? Are you self-critical in your efforts to obtain perfection? Do you find yourself shutting down or shutting off? You don't have to suffer in silence. Nor do you have to leave any part of yourself behind - I work with the whole person. Our identities often intersect with our struggles and our strengths. I'll meet you where you're at, and help you get where you're going. Whether you are just starting or looking to maintain your recovery from eating disorders, trauma and/or substance use, together recovery is possible.
Through the use of evidence based interventions you can connect authentically with others; remember or discover your values and purpose; create a life worth living - where you thrive instead of strive; nourish your body without worrying about how or if you're doing it right; enjoy social situations without comparing yourself to others or worrying about food.
Call me or email me to schedule your first session! I have worked with families, adolescents and adults in several treatment centers that specialize in eating disorders, trauma and substance use. I have worked extensively with families of and individuals who are trans and non-binary, as well as people who identify as queer, pansexual and LGB.
